It's unlikely anything will come of it, but since liability is such a big part of our job you should definitely do as suggested and write down everything you can remember while it's still fresh in your mind. Also, should the patient or his family send you a gift, refuse it. Here in the states, anyway, Good Samaritan laws do not protect you if you accept any form of compensation, and a dirty Ambulance Chaser trick is to send the target a nice watch or something as a "thank-you gift" and then sue the fuck out of him when he accepts it.

Samaritan laws or not, this guy owes you at least a beer

I built a set of standardized kits in Tactical Tailor Medic Pouches(link) that contain plenty of kerlix, a roll of Celox trauma gauze, a SWAT TQ, a couple Ashermans, 6" Izzies, a mylar emergency space blanket, and a roll of backpacking duct tape. It's pretty dense, but well organized, and it can clip onto the outside of a bag or belt(or the back of a car headrest).
By building standardized kits, I know what's in all of them, and there's always one in reach...
